The Kreg Cabinet Hardware Jig takes the guesswork out of installing cabinet knobs and pulls. The moveable edge guide and measuring scales make it easy to position knobs precisely, while adjustable drill guides ensure straight holes for perfect knob and pull positioning every time. Perfect for new construction and for refreshing entire rooms.

Whether you're updating your cabinets or building a project from scratch, adding hardware like knobs and pulls is often one of the final steps —​ and one of the most intimidating. Drill the holes incorrectly, and it can be very difficult to correct the mistake. The Cabinet Hardware Jig takes all the guesswork out of the process by allowing you to drill straight, accurately positioned holes every time, so you'll know that every piece of hardware is positioned correctly and consistently. 

The Cabinet Hardware Jig features moveable, hardened-steel drill guides that lock in place to align with common hole-spacing measurements for cabinet knobs and pulls. This allows you to confidently drill straight, accurately positioned holes. A moveable edge guide and built-in measuring scales (in imperial and metric) ensure that those holes will be positioned where you want it every time, which means you can drill as many holes as you need without the uncertainty and potential mistakes that can come with measuring and marking every one.

The Cabinet Hardware Jig is designed to be intuitive for beginners to use, but robust enough for professionals. All you need is a drill and a 3/16", bit, and the ability to set the jig to match your hardware and the position where you want it to go. Durable polymer construction makes the jig tough but light, and hardened-steel drill guides ensure that you’ll get straight, accurate holes — whether you’re drilling one, a few, or hundreds.

Good but...

New house - 84 knobs and pulls. Bought this to install them and save a bunch of $$$. The concept is great but I found two flaws. One the "stop bar" does not get close enough to the edge to get in the center of any of the doors in our rooms, worked great on single height drawers though. The other issue is it's not tall/wide enough to do larger double depth drawers. I do love the drill guides as that keeps the holes nice and straight which is super important for pulls. There should be an add on piece to the "stop" which would get it to the center of the door frame and making the whole thing longer would make it perfect. Still a time saver but there was still a lot of measuring to find the centers. I did like the price point!

Positioning Issues

This fixture works very good on wider wood stock but not so well when using on 1 X 2 or narrower wood. The design of the positioning fence will not allow for centering the hardware at 3/4" from the edge or less depending on the width of the wood without putting a spacer on the face of the fence. This works only OK but, is a pain to keep the spacers in place while clamping and drilling. It would be nice if the fence were redesigned or a secondary fence was available for use on narrow wood stock.

It's the customer service which makes me come back

I just called customer service because one of the grey guides came apart during an install. I have had the product for about a month and just installed my 28th pull. I didn't expect the product to malfunction. Now.. it's a great product and does what it says. So 100% worth it. Just wish guides were better built. So I didn't hesitate to pick up the phone and call customer service. I believe I spoke to Bill (didn't wait at all) . Nice guy.. I explained what happened. He said he apologized the product failed and without question sent me 2 replacements. That is great customer service. I am less upset the product failed and more likely to purchase product from Kreg simply because I know if I have an issue, there is no question it will get resolved. Site note... Make an 8 inch version of this! Regards, S

Great Tool........but

The machine bolts on my cabinet hardware are 8-32 and they fit in the 5/32 hole in my drill guide. When the 5/32 holes are drilled the screws fit properly, snug, not too tight and not too loose. Using the 3/16 guide makes the drill sloppy in the guide holes and I have to be careful when drilling it, because my cabinet drawers are inset where the handles mount and the gap between the jig and cabinet face makes accuracy even more difficult. I'm not keen on drilling oversized 3/16 holes in the cabinets, that would create issues later down the road with hardware moving around if the screws become loose. Also I really want the holes drilled exact so when I look down a drawer cabinet all the handles line up exactly plum and straight. Can you guys make smaller guides to fit the 5/32 drill bits ? I would like a more exact product Thank You Mr G

Great start

I love it, installed all the pulls in my kitchen in a snap! The only thing I would say is it would be nice to have an extension for large drawers. Mine are shaker panels and about 13" so trying to clamp the jig inside the shakers was a bit of a trick. Would be awesome to have a few slides to make it easier. Just my $0.02.
